Question about 1998 Ford Contour
First make sure there is a good 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water and that it is filled properly. Second, it sounds as if the thermostat may be stuck. If it's overheating, the temp sending unit controlling the fan is going to tell it to stay on. Change the thermostat and fill it with fresh 50/50 mix of water/antifreeze. Run the engine to normal operating temperature with the heater running and the radiator cap off. Ensure there is good circulation once it reaches normal operating temp. If there appears to be no circulation you could possibly have a bad water pump as well. This should take care of your problem.
